Stop Barbaric Kenyan Gov't Officials. #NoMore Murders, Landgrabbing, Injustices, tribalism

For ICC Hague in Netherlands ATTN: Kenyan Government Vs the people Dear Sir/ Madam, This is a formal request for ICC Hague to oversee the judgement against barbaric corrupt Kenyan officials. One governor is noted for using his brother every so often to threaten and cause destructions via corruptly utilizing government powers, even after being indicted. For now the names of those on the red list won't be mentioned. Many other corrupt officials have gotten off scotch free because many witnesses were shut from standing up for what was right. As of today we declare we won't keep silent until justice is done. No more inhumanity to our own kind;-Many lives including childrens lives have been mericilessly slaughtered in Kenya by the kenyan government.-People's homes have been vandalized and demolished and wrongfully grabbed leaving citizens homeless. These are homes that have been rightfully theirs. Yet the kenyan government want whats not theirs.-Students are left to study in institutions that are damaged and debris falling on students, others get hurt or killed.-Medications and jobs and foods and healthy lifestyles are denied for other tribes including children. This campaign won't stop here. We are a collected individuals who are willing to take our case as far as we can. We need a listening ear, this time No means NO!  Thank you. From the people.

Stop dog chaining in Nassau County Florida.

Dear Nassau County Commissioners: In Nassau County, Florida it is perfectly legal to chain a puppy to a immovable object such as a tree and him leave there  - - forever.   The only requirement is that he has food, water and a shelter with a floor, roof and  three sides.  This practice is prevalent throughout this county. Nassau County has yet to pass an anti-tethering ordinance.  As one former commissioner stated, "I am sympathetic, but many of my constituents chain their dogs and they would never support this ordinance."  What's so bad about tethering a dog?  Dogs are highly social animals, but when they isolated, chained and unable to retreat they suffer adverse behavioral changes putting them in a constant defensive attack mode.  That barking dog on a chain is not being protective. He is fearful, defensive and aggressive.     Chained dogs are five times more likely to attack children who want to pet, "the nice doggy" or inadvertently wander within reach of the chain Tethered-dogs have a horrific life as they are subject to extreme temperature changes, pouring rain and even hurricanes.  They are preyed on by mosquitoes, fleas and ticks.  They are usually infested with hookworms, roundworms and heartworms.  They are susceptible to mange and a host of other diseases.   In human terms, tethering is the equivalent of eternal, solitary confinement.  The Humane Society of the United States and numerous animal behaviorists  along with the    U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) issued a statement in the July 2, 1996, Federal Register against chaining: "Our experience in enforcing the Animal Welfare Act has led us to conclude that continuous confinement of dogs by a tether is inhumane. A tether significantly restricts a dog's movement. A tether can also become tangled around or hooked on the dog's shelter structure or other objects, further restricting the dog's movement and potentially causing injury."  In 1997, the USDA ruled that people and organizations regulated by the Animal Welfare Act cannot keep dogs continuously chained. The American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) stated "Never tether or chain your dog because this can contribute to aggressive behavior." The Center for Disease Control (CDC) concluded in a study that the dogs most likely to attack are male, unneutered, and chained. Commissioner we, the undersigned urge you to pass an anti-tethering ordinance in Nassau County, Florida outlawing this cruel and unnecessary treatment of man's best friend.
